Our 3 hour whale watching adventure was absolutely incredible in every way. The staff was very friendly, attentive, and very informative. We learned so much about Humpbacks and other marine life. I can't say enough about our boat crew! The most incredible part was all the whales and dolphins we saw yesterday! So many whales in various pods. We saw lots of breeching, tail slaps, pec slaps, and more. The whales seemed to be entertaining our boat. I highly recommend this activity for tourists and locals. I will definitely return!

What an unforgettable experience. Truly an amazing spectacle of nature. Nothing short of stunning, Thankyou for treating us with your obvious experience that really got us in the middle of the wild nature. Getting to hear them breath, what a treat.

I wanted to go whale watching whilst I was in Sydney but there were so many options I had no idea where to start. I went to see the team at Manly Whale Watching and they were so helpful. They went through every option with me to make sure I was getting the best trip possible. I highly recommend their service to anyone visiting Manly. I have been out twice with Manly Whale Watching. Once on their new Champagne Sailing Cruise and once on the Manly Ocean Adventure Safari. Both were so completely different and I wouldn't have been able to get such variety anywhere else. Thank you Manly Whale Watching!

I booked this much in advance since I was on a planned business trip to Sydney and did not want to take the chance that I could not do this. We were extremely lucky, direct out of the harbour we saw multiple pods of humpbacks that stayed with us and came to look at quite close range. I took some pretty good photos and have also the collection that Blake, our captain for the trip, shared with us by email for free. It was an amazing experience. When I went back we sadly saw no whales, but just the fun of speeding with the boat and flying over the waves is also a pretty cool experience. (And you always have the free re-cruise that is offered if you see no whales) All in all, I cannot wait till I get back and I would advise anyone to go with Manly Whale Watching, because of the size of the boat and the smaller group you can only get closer to the whales if you are in the water Plus you have a knowledgeable captain in Blake, who despite the fact that he makes daily trips, still get very excited about all stunts the whales perform.
